I thought the same things this morning when I saw yellow leave littering the yard. Ack! But I love the contrast in colors and textures in this photo.

Hahaha, our leaves look like that too but that's because the Texas sun is frying them alive. It's still over 100 down here... every hellish day... count your blessings!!

Beautiful shot, by the way!

Wonderful picture , that says so much in the most simple and smart way..And, for me, in those days, a message of hope..Ü

I think this year has been all screwed up as far as weather goes. I know we had the coldest July ever recorded and everything has gone downhill since April when we got too much rain. The leaf is, I think, a sign of things to come.

Thank you very much for visiting my Pick a Peck of Pixels blog and for the comment you left me there.

Beautiful contrast of colors in an sad image that is a message to us.
Walking in a park this afternoon I was surprised by the number of fallen leaves. I'm not so sure to be displeased by this. Our fall and winter are quite palatable, but our summer often isn't.

I love each season in its turn and especially those small hints of change: the new chill of evening, the slightest change of colour.

I guess it makes sense that the northern hemisphere is on the cusp: this weekend in Sydney saw temperatures of 23C and we are meant to be in deep winter.

Go figure ...

Today, I have a house to complement you post of last week.

Let's hope it is just a wayward leaf and not an early indicator of Autumn. Nice shot though.

"Listen, I had an accident. I didn't mean to be down, where I'm slowly dying and being tromped on!"

"So, let me help you. I'll put you back on the tree."

"No! Just leaf me alone!"

Beautiful! I love this photo - it's so clean and the contrast is beautiful. Sorry, I'm thinking more of the photo than of the end of summer for you!
